I absolutely loved Gemma and Knox’s story! We got to meet both these characters a bit in Match Fit, but neither character is anything like I expected. When hard times hit Gemma, she finds her own white knight in the form of Knox, even if she is not willing to accept his helping hand – just yet. Given the nature of their first encounter a year prior, Gemma isn’t ready to fully trust Knox’s intentions are truly 100% pure.

A friends to lovers romance that had a bit more angst given the nature of Gem

This is an amazing story! I fell in love with the storyline and the characters almost immediately. It's hot, sexy, and nothing like I've read in a long time.

They make a deal to be friends and not let sex get involved, but their feelings get involved and makes things even more difficult. With their growing friendship turning into a r

This is the first book that I have read by Amelie S. Duncan. I thought it was written well and I absolutely loved the characters and their storyline. Gemma is an actress dating a gambling addict whose parents happen to own the theatre that she works out of. He disappears for days and weeks at a time but this time what he has done is unforgivable. He stole money from Gemma's bank account and left her destitute and to top that off he has demolished the apartment that they shared. What is she going ...more

Fun read. Being a soccer fan made this one more interesting.

Probably my least favorite of the series. Mostly because I didn't really care for Gemma in the first book and it took awhile to warm up to her in this book.

This was a good friends to lovers story. Gemma and Knox were so good together that I wanted to reach through my kindle and slap some sense into her sometimes as she tried to fight her feelings. The story dragged a little bit for me in the beginning but definitely picked back up.

I enjoyed the romance, the drama of Gemma's ex and the story made for a good ride of emotions.

Match Made is a standalone spin-off of another Amelie Duncan novel, Match Fit. There are some recurring characters, but their history is explained well enough to prevent confusion.

Knox and Gemma run into one another a year after they went on a horrible date. Apparently, Knox chose to ask the waitress for her number... while at dinner with Gemma... in front of Gemma. Needless to say, I was happy to know that she immediately ditched him.
Gemma has just broken up with her live-in boyfriend who empt
